Defenses Against Deportation in Orlando
There are two primary stages to removal defense. First, you could show why the allegations against you are incorrect. Essentially, you are arguing that you are not actually subject to removal.
If the government still finds that removal is justified, you can request one or more different types of relief from removal. Depending on the situation, you could be eligible for:
- Cancellation of removal based on hardship
- Asylum or withholding of removal
- A waiver of inadmissibility
- Adjustment of status
- A visa available for victims of certain crimes
- Temporary protected status
If all opportunities for deportation relief are rejected by immigration authorities, American Dream™ Law Office can help you arrange a voluntary departure. This step will make it easier to return to the U.S. in the future.
Notice to Appear
For many people in Orlando, the first time they learn of problems with immigration authorities is when they receive a Notice to Appear informing them that there are grounds to have them removed from the U.S. This document can cause a panic attack, and it prompts some people to try to hide. However, trying to evade authorities weakens your case and can make it much harder to defend against removal.
Instead, it is important to comply with requirements while exploring all options for relief.
The Notice to Appear should explain the reasons the government believes you are subject to removal. It is crucial to examine these reasons in detail to determine how to refute the allegations. The Notice will also provide information about when and where you should appear in court. If you fail to appear, you may be prevented from obtaining virtually any type of relief.
In some cases, authorities detain individuals before the hearing in court. If you are in detention, your immigration attorney could request a bond hearing to help secure your release while you wait for the removal proceedings to continue. If you contact your attorney right after being taken into detention, your lawyer may be able to negotiate a bond without a hearing.
